Commit to Learning—Knowledge is Power!
Commit to doing your own research and be wary when it comes to outdated research on the internet. Most publications are old, inaccurate, and focus too heavily on the limitations. Knowledge is power! We are committed to becoming students in this field and learning all there is to know about 47 XXY, so we can make the best-guided decisions for our boy. Our geneticist also offered a great piece of advice: don’t become overly obsessed with research that you miss out on your son’s first year of life. He is still a regular baby just like all the others. As parents, we’ve received the gift of knowledge by discovering at such a young age how Jack will grow, think, learn, and develop. Enjoy this momentous time with your son and find a healthy balance by staying in the loop with the ever-changing research, medical advancements, and studies in the community.
